Manufactured Housing Financing

Affordable financing options

With the country facing a shortage of affordable homes, manufactured housing provides a solution for borrowers ready to purchase. Whether a borrower is taking one of the most affordable paths to homeownership, or a more attainable alternative to site-built homes, Fannie Mae offers options to help a range of customers achieve the dream of homeownership.
